This thread was inspired in part by the "What do you do for dinner the first night back home?" thread, which got plenty of answers. Now, let's look at the other side of the equation: breakfast before leaving for your cruise. By that, I mean the day you travel to the embarkation city, not the day you embark (first cruise day). Although if you live in the embarkation city, those will be one and the same.

I'll start with mine. I want something I can cook and eat in under 20 minutes, with minimum effort and no stove (I'd be paranoid about forgetting to turn it off). For my past cruises, I pre-made a breakfast sandwich the night before, and left it in the fridge. So in the morning, all I needed to do is microwave the sandwich and make the coffee. I know microwaved eggs taste rubbery; but taste isn't really a priority at that point.

My second breakfast (a small meal, common in Europe) consisted of pretzels and a beer on the plane.

I eat the same breakfast that I eat every day.

We always stay in a hotel next to port so we usually find a local diner.

That's breakfast on embarkation day. This thread is directed at people who fly or drive to the cruise port, oftentimes the day before. In other words, what do you eat for breakfast before flying or driving to that hotel?

On our way to any vacation, we almost always get Starbucks.

All my sailings but one have been within 'day of' driving and since I normally work overnights I don't do breakfast but an early lunch... So we tend to hit Del Taco before heading to the port. Although we might stop at a nice gas station for snacks and drinks too, like Wawa or RaceTrac. For my one "away" sailing, we had a hotel with two different included breakfast locations, so we just ate at the hotel before taking the metro to the port.
